As many as four players presently in the camp of the Super Eagles in France are set to be axed from the team when the list for the AFCON 2017 Qualifiers game against South Africa is released.
Owngoalnigeria.com sources reveal coach Gernot Rohr will drop the players after the game against Togo on the 1st of June, with their spot set to be taken by players excused from the training camp in France.
Presently 19 players are in the camp of the team but the number will be whittled down to 15 with six players or probably seven joining the team next month when preparations for the June 10 clash against South Africa hots up.
For now the players who are likely to be axed have not been released by the coach but six players are set to be recalled to the squad according to reports exclusively gathered by Owngoalnigeria.com correspondent.
Victor Moses, John Ogu, Ogenyi Onazi, Daniel Akpeyi , Kenneth Omeruo and Brown Ideye are all expected to be handed recall to the team, while Moses Simon is also heavily under consideration.
